“Go on one of the family nights, lots of fun for all...”
Review of Gloucester Park

Gloucester Park
Ranked #59 of 169 things to do in Perth
Attraction details
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We go each summer and invite a bunch of families. It is gr8 on a hot balmy night, placing a few bets and a few laughs. The family themed nights are gr8 fun with entertainment for kids such as face painting, climbing walls, mechanical surfboard and more. Go at Chinese new year celebrations and it is even better with a Chinese market, and fireworks at the end after the horses have left the track.

Gloucester park is in need of a renovation. Came to a meeting recently and nothing has changed. This venue is "tired" and in need of a serious revamp

Gloucestor Park is an iconic location in Perth, home to pacing horse races for more years than I can recall. It has beena dapting over recent years to attcta families and it has worked. My experience on a Friday evening with friends was fantastic. Placing a bet, getting a drink or buying fast food or taking in a sit down meal was all easy and relaxed. When in Perth on a Friday night, it is worth investing your time to have a great time, and you might even win a little money as I did!

Arrived at 8pm, really too late to get the best from the restaurant and track. But who would have thought 8pm was too late on a Friday night? Entry to the track was $10 per person, a very reasonable charge. However, the actual race track was almost deserted, while it is still winter, one would have expected more people. Have been a number of times during summer and is usually reasonably busy. The Beau Rivage restaurant is located on the second level of the main stand, we selected the buffet and charged $66 per person. As we were late arrivals, the food had been out for some time and past it's prime. We also purchased bottled wine from the bar, now while you expect restaurant wine charges to be higher, the charges are almost outrageous. They charged $46 for the Vasse Felix "Classic Dry Red" and while a nice drink, the premium charge is not warranted. The buffet is definately not worth the charge, while I might go back to the track in summer, I won't be going to this restaurant again. The views of the track are excellent from the restaurant, the river runs past the track so the river views are excellent too, even better after they switch the lights off after the last race. Unfortunately, the views arn't worth the cost of the restaurant - won't be going back to this restaurant again.
